'One Buncombe' grant fund now open: Webinars TODAY & Thursday
The application window is now open for the 'One Buncombe' grant fund, developed to help local small businesses retain and rehire their employees -- especially those businesses that have had a hard time accessing other relief options.
Applicants must be a for-profit business located in Buncombe County and in existence prior to October 1, 2020, with fewer than 25 FTEs. Sole proprietors/owner-employees and independent contract (1099) workers are eligible.
Informational webinars take place TODAY, February 9 at 2 p.m. and Thursday, February 11 at 9:30 a.m. Although the deadline is February 28, there is no benefit to rushing your application. All applications completed and submitted by deadline will be considered equally.
'One Buncombe' is funded by Buncombe County Service Foundation with support from individuals and entities that include Buncombe County TDA, which recently contributed $40,000, adding to the $50,000 donated last spring using revenue earned from advertising on ExploreAsheville.com.
